Road casualties in Great Britain: Main Results from the Department of Transport 2006 strategy figures

The main results show that the number of people involved in road accidents fell from 3,201 in 2005 to 3,172 in 2006, a drop of 1%.  In 2006 31,845 people were killed or seriously injured, also a drop of 1%. However the number of road casualties as a whole dropped 5% in 2006 to 258,404. There were 189,161 road accidents involving personal injury in 2006, a drop of 5% from 2005.

Car casualties

The number of deaths among car users in 2006 was 1,612, 4% less than in previous year and the number seriously injured fell by 2% to 12,642. Total casualties among car users in 2006 were 171,000, 4% lower than 2005. Provisional traffic estimates indicate a 1% cent rise in car and taxi traffic over the period.

Child casualties

Child casualties fell by 9% per cent. The number of children killed or seriously injured 2006 was 3,294, down 5%. Of those 2,025 were pedestrians, also 5% down.  However, 169 children died on the roads, an increase of 20% from 2005.

Motorcycle casualties for 2006 were 23,326, 6% higher than in 2005.

In 2000, the Government announced a new road safety strategy that sets out new targets for reducing casualties by the year 2010. These targets should result in a 40% reduction in the number of people killed or seriously injured in road accidents during the period 1994-1998, a 50% reduction in the number of children killed or seriously injured and a 10% reduction in the slight casualty rate.  This last figure is expressed as the number of people slightly injured/100 million vehicle kilometres.

In 2006 the number of people killed or seriously injured was 33% below the 1994-98 average, the number of children killed or seriously injured was 52% below and provisional estimates show the slight casualty rate was 26% per cent below the 1994-98 average.
